Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane believes that Claudio Ranieri made a big mistake by winning the Premier League title with Leicester City.
The Foxes shocked the footballing world by sacking Ranieri last week and Friday, nine months after the Italian historically led the club to the league title.
Mosimane, who himself guided the Brazilians to an Absa Premiership league title believes that sometimes winning a major trophy could be a big mistake in the future, hence Ranieri's axing.
"Football is cruel; you saw what happened to the coach of Leicester, it's unbelievable," said Mosimane as quoted by KickOff.
"Our lives are on the edge in this game. The guy made a mistake by winning the premiership (Premier League).
"I think if he didn’t win the premiership and came number six, he would be still having the job.
"He won the premiership, that’s the biggest mistake he did. It's football hey."
Meanwhile, Sundowns will face Chippa United in a PSL fixture on Tuesday, February 28.
Kick off is at 19:30.
